Icelandic Goat Products Increasing in Popularity

The most active goat farmer in Iceland, Jóhanna B. Runólfsdóttir, whose work has helped saving the Icelandic goat from extinction, says goat products are becoming increasingly popular. They are the basis for sustaining the goat stock, she says.

“For the Icelandic goat stock to gain strength the products need to be distributed to a larger area,” Runólfsdóttir told 24 Stundir. The farmer sells goat meat, cheeses and milk, which are constantly becoming more popular.

“The popularity can be attributed to increased discussion about goat products and their uniqueness,” Runólfsdóttir said. “Kid meat is firm and lighter than goat meat and I like to marinate it with garlic and oil and then spice it with thyme and even dwarf birch.”

Runólfsdóttir also recommends barbequing figs and goat cheese.
